    i have recently moved and am having trouble connecting my computer up to a new connection. it's an existing connection that is networked through a phone line dsl modem. there is a computer in the bedroom that is connected through a router, that is connected through the modem. i have tried using my connection and just plugging it into the router in which the other computer works absolutely fine on. mine not so. it does not recognize the connection and if it does will only stay online for about 2 minutes. but if i connect straight to the modem without using the router it works perfectly fine, but unfortunately there is no way to keep both systems running on the modem without some kind of add on hookup to the modem..... if this makes sense to anyone. what i need is to connect both computers and have them online and running perfectly at the same time.

    any kind of help would be appreciated.

    Sounds to me like your router is dropping your lease. What brand router is it and have you upgraded firmware recently?
    Since it works fine without the router, that is where I would look first.

    You might like to try running Winsock XP Fix


    Step 1. Delete the corrupted registry keys

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.

    3. In Registry Editor, locate the following keys, right-click each key, and then click Delete:



    4. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

    NOTE: Restart the computer after you delete the Winsock keys. Doing so causes the Windows XP operating system to create new shell entries for those two keys. If you do not restart the computer after you delete the Winsock keys, the next step does not work correctly.

    Step 2. Install TCP/IP

    1. Right-click the network connection, and then click Properties.

    2. Click Install.

    3. Click Protocol, and then click Add.

    4. Click Have Disk.

    5. Type C:\Windows\inf, and then click OK.

    6. On the list of available protocols, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click OK.

    7. Restart the computer.

    Hope this helps…

    Lets us know how you go…

    Cheers :D
